We liked this hotel. Stayed on the way back south after the holidays. The rooms are large and clean. It's nice being able to park right outside of your hotel room. Friendly, professional staff. Only thing lacking was breakfast. Great choice, we will stay here again.

We had stayed at this hotel under previous ownership and are very pleased with the upgrades to the rooms. The beds are comfortable and the... More

Found this place on trip advisor because we needed a place to stay overnight while we were traveling south. For $60 this place is great. The room is dated but clean, cable worked fine wifi not so much. You get what you pay for but a great value for the price. Plenty of other guests were staying here. The place... More

Convenient & Allows pets hence why we chose it. Has very firm mattresses which I didn't like but the husband did. Rooms were clean & check in clerk Matt was very polite & friendly. The breakfast they offer is nothing more than Little Debbie's and coffee. We skipped that needless to say. Overall satisfied with it for a quick one... More

We traveled with our toddler and we were very happy to find the clean accommodations here! The property is obviously well taken care of. Nothing fancy but great for an overnight stay. Good location by the highway with lots of food options nearby.

Using Trip Adviser, I chose this property on my trip South, as an interim stop, for myself only....no family.. My criteria was simple - CLEAN and lower cost. Property is older, but extremely clean and well run. Check in was fast and professional. Well worth the money. I'd stay here again.

I made a reservation at the Econo Lodge for a late check in. Check in was quick and the man at the desk was very nice. The room was ok for a quick nite stay. There were things laying on the floor that did not get pick up by the cleaning people, and at the bottom of the sink cabinet... More

We stayed at this Econo Lodge based on Trip Advisor reviews. When traveling and needing a place to sleep for 8 hours I look for reviews that say clean! This hotel was clean and easy access from I 75. The gentleman at the desk was efficient and friendly . Good value too! We rested well.
